Should Hologram Tupac Go on Tour?

At first, Tupac Shakur's hologram performance seemed a little bit eerie. Then it was kind of awesome... in a weird "Star Wars" sort of way. Now, as the full implications of the event become evident, it's getting weird again. According to the Wall Street Journal, Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre actually want to take the rapping hologram on tour with them.

Well, on the bright side, Tupac's mother, Afeni Shakur, is cool with it. TMZ reports that Afeni was "absolutely positively thrilled" with the Coachella performance. She didn't attend the show, but watched it stream live on the Internet. She had given Dre permission to use the hologram before-hand, and in return made a donation to The Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation. We definitely think Hologram Tupac is an awesome element once in a while -- but will the idea go overboard if he actually becomes part of a living, breathing musical tour?

    Interesting technology, but it's not as claimed. It's not a hologram; it's just a projection onto a sheet of plastic. The image is CGI; the voiceover "artist" is so far unnamed. Not something that would be of lasting interest; it's just a novelty. A true hologram, OTOH ...

    Nothing but a thug. Maybe he can go on tour with Biggie Smalls.

    It would be a good way to murder a legacy. Let it go, there's a reason why we need to move on. Cool to donate the money though. I love 2Pac. But by putting on a 2Pac hologram tour there would be no way to let him rest in peace. This is the kind of thing that can only be in done as a once in a lifetime. Take what they did with Nat King Cole and Elvis. Enough is enough. Let the legends rest.

    It's pretty damn eerie - let the man rest in peace, this kind of spookiness is for the sake of the sound of ker-ching!!! It's clever - but at the same time it's in bad taste and opens the floodgates to the exploitation of the long dead having them literally rise from their graves to eek out a living for those less talented!

    Sure, they've been doing it in Japan for a few years now. Even ones still alive! The artists down get ground down from a grueling travel schedule for month on end and can even appear in several, widely separated at the same time.

    First, it's not a hologram but a visual trick with a mirror. Second, who would want to pay for what is essentially a projection of a videotape? That's a hundred times tackier than the lip-syncing stick of Britney, Madonna, et al.

    how would this make kids go see him? And why would you pay a lot of money to go see an artist that you've never heard with the chance that you might not even like him? not to mention it's just a hologram, not even the actual person. plus, every hip hop fan I know is familiar with 2pac, even the little kiddies who were just born a few years ago. In fact, even people who hate rap know of him. The only people who haven't heard of him are probably reaallly young white kids who don't like rap or old school music, so they wouldn't be fond of 2pac anyways.

    The Coachella thing was cool, and a great tribute to Tupac, but I think taking a dead man's hologram on tour is simply disrespectful! End of.

    Does the word "played-out" mean anything to them? Especially so soon after the first hologram performance. The use of a hologram is only cool if it stays a once-in-awhile thing.

    Its part of the future
    I can see all the legends who have passed being added to the hologram stage
    This way new generations can experience the YESTERDAY YEAR GREATS
    Who they were as people is not the question
    People who live in glass houses should not throw stones

    I knew that was coming, and there is no way I will ever go see a Hologram concert of dead people. Have some respect for the dead. Just bad business trying to make money of a dead person.

    Maybe they could also make a Jim Morrison hologram so The Doors can have a reunion tour.Or If Tony Iommi dies,they could make holograms of him and Bill.
